Getting Comfortable With The Basics

Customize Sort Order Of YouTube Playlists

With TubePress 4.1.0 and higher, controlling the sort order of videos in a YouTube playlist must now be done directly on you instead of from within TubePress. This is a limitation imposed by YouTube and is unlikely to change in the near future.

Thankfully it’s still pretty easy. Here’s how to adjust the sort order of a YouTube playlist:

  • From your playlist management page on, click the “Edit” button for the appropriate playlist.


  • Click “Playlist Settings”


  • Use the “Ordering” dropdown to select your desired sort order.


TubePress will now display the playlist in the order that you have selected. If you have enabled TubePress’s API cache, it might take some time for your changes to show up on your website.
